Reading Buddies

As you may have seen on another blog post, we’ve paired up our grade 6s and kindergarteners as reading buddies. They meet on Fridays to read together, with the older students helping the younger ones. 

It’s not only the kindergarten class who love this… my students look forward to it all week! It’s their chance to take on a leadership role as they move into grade 7 next year. More than that, I think they can see themselves in the kindergarteners. It’s not so long ago that they were that age and learning to read too.
